Canning pics

I realized I didn’t post much about this season…so here’s a catchup post on some of the canning I did this season.  These are all new-to-me recipes 🙂

canned spaghetti sauce

60 pounds of tomatoes became 13 pint and a half jars of delicious homemade spaghetti sauce. I followed the Spaghetti Sauce Without Meat recipe found in So Easy To Preserve. (

canned ketchup

The Ball Complete Book’s recipe for ketchup. (I’ve already finished off my first half-pint and I really like it. It has a little more liquid than I’m used to but a nice strong flavor)

home canned pizza sauce

Pizza sauce in more half-pint jars

dilly beans

Dilly beans! This is a Ball Complete Book one too.

canned diced tomatoes

canned homegrown pink and purple potatoes

Pink and purple potatoes from this years early harvest


My first batch of applesauce. I blended them in my vitamix so they came out a bit thin.

condensed tomato soup

And finally…condensed tomato soup from SB Canning’s recipe. I cracked open the first jar after our first freeze and liked it SOOOO much I made another batch.

    Great job of putting up produce. I am sure you will really enjoy it this winter. Since you dehydrate a lot I imagine you have done carrot slices. I plan to do some this year. Did you blanch or just slice and put in dehydrator. I guess people do it both ways. I would be using them for soups. Nancy
